Dublin needs to examine first glance like a fairly modern city. Founded by the Vikings over 1,000 years ago (you can see the archaeological evidence, at the Dublinia Museum), the Irish capital feels like a mythic place. While you won't see the historic buildings of many other European cities, the charm of the Irish capital lies in it culture and people. Duck into one of Dublin's 600+ pubs to hear an Irish music jam session. A literary city like no other, experience Dublin literature on a literary pub crawl or visit museums dedicated to the written word. Wish to medieval illustrated manuscripts? Look at the Book of Kells at Trinity College. Want something a little more recent? The Bram Stoker Museum showcases the life of the Dracula author. Of course, Ireland wouldn’t be the same ones without its beer or whiskey, so a sojourn to the Guinness Storehouse or the Old Jamestown Distillery is a highlight. Keep up the partying in the restaurants and bars of Dublin's vibrant Temple Bar district, where you can sleep in a hotel owned by members of U2.
_We***45great place to check out in Dublin. it has an amazing library. but there is a wait. The grounds are free to visit and take pictures. the buildings and the lawn are very nice. if you are interested in education and history definitely a place to go. they have student tours aswell.
E32***16A lovely journey through the historical and precise process of this iconic beer (stout). Great value for money if you really take in what the guide has to say. And the skybar at the end is fantastic with 360 degree views of such a cool city! Highly recommend!
Dublin is the capital and largest city of Ireland. Situated on a bay on the east coast, at the mouth of the River Liffey, it lies within the province of Leinster. It is bordered on the south by the Dublin Mountains, a part of the Wicklow Mountains range. It has an urban area population of 1,173,179, while the population of the Dublin Region (formerly County Dublin) as of 2016 was 1,347,359. The population of the Greater Dublin Area was 1,904,806 per the 2016 census.
There is archaeological debate regarding precisely where Dublin was established by the Gaels in or before the 7th century AD. Later expanded as a Viking settlement, the Kingdom of Dublin, the city became Ireland's principal settlement following the Norman invasion. The city expanded rapidly from the 17th century and was briefly the second largest city in the British Empire after the Acts of Union in 1800. Following the partition of Ireland in 1922, Dublin became the capital of the Irish Free State, later renamed Ireland.

Dublin, Ireland (Eire) just before Christmas. With so many beautiful lights this town really brings very nice atmosphere. I had only 1 night here so I couldn't see many things but for sure someday I will go again and see what I missed. Meanwhile enjoy the night pictures of Dublin.
Home for the holidays! Great to see family and friends over the festive period. I need to get home more often. I’ll definitely use Trip.com to book when I do! Merry Christmas! #merrychristmas
Dublin is a beautiful city just on the water. Great for walks and close to nature. Best time to go is of course fo St Patricks day!
The Phoenix Park is one of the most peaceful park that I've ever been to! I was so hungover from the crazy bar hopping the other night, and went to have ramen for my hangover. Then I found out the ramen place is near this park and I decided to check it out simply because they were close to each other😂 But it turned out amazing! It was such a HUGE and beautiful park with such a good maintenance and the animals there were so adorable too. Look at the seagull sitting on the head of statue😂 Doesn't it look so clueless and cute?
It feels like Dublin has a culture of its own. I‘ve never meet such open-minded people! They greet you with open arms and show you the best bars in town! Don‘t try to outdrink them though - you will loose! 😂
